Re: Are most people here sticking with Treasuries?

Checking in w/ everyone - How are we feeling w/ TLT tanking big time? Feeling a bit dumb. This seemed like an obvious scenario many months ago. High inflation, the fed raising rates, Treasuries crashing - what else was going to happen? I was tempted to dump my Treasuries as soon as there was talk o...

Re: Are most people here sticking with Treasuries?

Checking in w/ everyone - How are we feeling w/ TLT tanking big time? Just a side note on Smithy's GoldSmith Portfolio. Because you don't "see" the swings in the individual asset classes, it "feels" more stable. Just a perception issue, but very real for a nervous investor. Indeed! Definitely one o...

Re: These are angry, woman-hating men

Funny how for so long it was only women's feelings that mattered. Now they're being told that they're "out." That must be making some of perpetual women-victims a little crazy. Joking aside, I honestly don't even know what to make of it. I'm just endlessly fascinated as I watch this all happen.

Welcome to Canada. Please have a seat.

Here's a pamphlet outlining the 70 pronouns you will need to memorize and how facts don't matter -- only feelings. :)

Re: PP YTD performance - was it the worst ever?

Given that that’s portfolio charts, I’d imagine it’s from the early 1970s to present.

What you get for $500K: Edmonton vs. Vancouver

Just a point of comparison, and to show how crazy the Vancouver real estate market is. This is after the recent downturn, too. Note that the Edmonton property even has a basement rental suite! :o Vancouver: https://www.rew.ca/properties/4536941/1205-1146-harwood-street-vancouver-bc Edmonton: https:/...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Just booked a flight for this coming Saturday to the city of Edmonton, Alberta. Going to buy a house there. I have a budget of about $500,000. For that amount of money you can buy yourself a very decent single family home. That same 500k will barely buy you an apartment here in lower mainland BC, a...

What's your favourite restaurant in the whole world? One of my favorite restaurants in the world was always the Burger King in the Hong Kong airport. It was nothing special on its own. But after spending multiple weeks in mainland China, the opportunity to have a generic American burger with import...

Re: The Meme Thread

That’s a good question. Probably my two favorites were these little places in Taiwan. Neither one had a name. One was in a shabby building and run by mainlanders serving mostly beef with green onion, and the other was a Taiwanese street stall - seafood noodles. Had some great meals in Hong Kong and...

Re: Scarce and high priced energy in Europe

What's most obvious to me: (1) That there is a group of people who want to believe that there is a Garden of Eden in which every want can be fulfilled without any corresponding cost. These generally are NOT the people who live simple, low-impact lives. They want all of the perks of modern living, i...
